The 13th edition of the Women's Forum Global Meeting will take place this year for the first time in Paris, on 5 and 6 October at the Carrousel du Louvre. On the theme of "Committing to a positive impact on the world of today and tomorrow, daring to engage in a ruptured world", the Forum is an opportunity for participants to make their voices heard, share their visions for the future and create commitments.
Since 2005, the Women's Forum Global Meeting has positioned itself as a platform from which to highlight the voices and opinions of women on the biggest social and economic issues. Drawing on the experience of women and men from every generation and across every continent, their conferences are characterised by rich and animated debates which serve as a sounding board for the major ideas of today and a launch-pad for the solutions of the future.
The Women's Forum Global Meeting brings together 2,000 people who participate in high-level conferences on the following themes: questions about the preservation of our environment, new developments made possible by the technology of smart cities, the impact of new technologies on businesses and the opportunities which could be offered by a de-globalised financial system. The Women's Forum Global Meeting is debating, studying, challenging.
The Women's Forum is, finally, the belief that women should be key players in imagining solutions to the challenges we are currently facing, and which we will continue to face in the future. That is why this year a special homage will be paid to Simone Veil, the French stateswoman who dedicated her life to justice and to the recognition of the fundamental rights of women.
The theme of this 13th edition of the Global Meeting will be "Committing to a positive impact on the world of today and tomorrow, daring to engage in a ruptured world", and will tackle the following four topics:
